If you didn't want to come off sounding like a jerk, then why did you word it that way? Just saying the idea is a combination of things that shouldn't go together doesn't help.

The whole idea was based off trying to save material and space by not replicating components in two pieces of tech that have several components in common. Looking at it a bit more, I'm starting to think it might make more sense to simply give the camera the ability to wirelessly tether to your smartphone. Your smartphone could serve like a cloud computer for your camera, allowing you to do things your camera's processor couldn't otherwise handle. After all, with everything going wireless that would actually make a lot more sense that having to deal with physical interfaces.
